From the 17th century onwards, under the Mughal dynasty, flower and leaf forms became a popular art subject. This is partly due to the personal taste of the Mughal emperor Jahangir (1605-1627) who had a great love of nature and was very interested in capturing plants and animals on paper.
This painting is an exquisite work of art from the western state of Rajasthan, India that carries on the tradition of Mughal floral art. It is an original hand made painting on paper. Not a print.
This miniature art provides a naturalistic depiction of a flower with great detail that brings out a feeling of earthly charm and pleasure. It is indeed an art to cherish and a collector's delight.
The painting is 8 in. wide and 11 in. tall. (20 cms X 28 cms)
